I first wrote this poem in 2010 (Which you can read HERE), my very first Poetic-short-story when I started blogging. Miss Felicia, the expert adviser told me to create a poster of it and voilà! Hope you like it, feedback and comments are always welcome.
Stay Happy and keep smiling :)
Hello my lovely readers, I am absolutely enthralled to introduce you all to my new (or first ever) expert adviser of this blog *Drumroll* Miss Felicia, who is absolutely charming. When I first saw her on television, I just screamed “It’s so fluffy!” Oops :o I meant I was so enchanted by her eyes and stature that I knew she is that treasure who will be my partner in crime if I were in need. Well, dang it! who am I kidding, I did scream “It’s so fluffy!!” Or was it Agnes who screamed? I guess it was indeed Agnes but she sounded a lot like me.

It’s easy to walk away from lies. Power is another thing.
MacKayla Lane would do anything to save the home she loves. A gifted sidhe-seer, she’s already fought and defeated the deadly Sinsar Dubh—an ancient book of terrible evil—yet its hold on her has never been stronger.
When the wall that protected humans from the seductive, insatiable Fae was destroyed on Halloween, long-imprisoned immortals ravaged the planet. Now Dublin is a war zone with factions battling for control. As the city heats up and the ice left by the Hoar Frost King melts, tempers flare, passions run red-hot, and dangerous lines get crossed.
Seelie and Unseelie vie for power against nine ancient immortals who have governed Dublin for millennia; a rival band of sidhe-seers invades the city, determined to claim it for their own; Mac’s former protégé and best friend, Dani “Mega” O’Malley, is now her fierce enemy; and even more urgent, Highland druid Christian MacKeltar has been captured by the Crimson Hag and is being driven deeper into Unseelie madness with each passing day. The only one Mac can depend on is the powerful, dangerous immortal Jericho Barrons, but even their fiery bond is tested by betrayal.
It’s a world where staying alive is a constant struggle, the line between good and evil gets blurred, and every alliance comes at a price. In an epic battle against dark forces, Mac must decide who she can trust, and what her survival is ultimately worth.
This is not going to be a regular review but more of a talk about the book #7 Burned in Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. Let’s go back to #6 book ‘Iced‘ first, it was released in 2012 and the readers were grossed out by the possible insinuated chemistry of Dani a fierce lively Fourteen-year-old girl and millennia-old-dashing-immortal Ryoden which probably made Karen Marie Moning (the author) change her plot for the next book and she pushed the publication date and Burned was released two years after Iced. (It’s my first fiction/fantasy/novel of this year) Continue reading
When I say the word ‘celebration’, what image dose your mind conjure? Don’t you see a joyous place filled with your family, friend and loved ones with lavish food to sooth your cravings. Isn’t that image too enticing for your taste buds! Celebration and food are two most essential tools that fill everyone’s life with exuberance and enthusiasm. They both complement each other and coexist. A celebration is not complete without food and every food is a celebration in itself. In real terms they are aspects that connect us to the profound meaning of life that is to be happy and help others to achieve the same happiness. Now, how can one help others to be happy? Simply by making them a part of our happiness especially those who aren’t as privileged as most of us. So, that’s why I decided to celebrate this 69th Independence day of India (15th August) with an underprivileged little girl along with my friends.
This blog post is an appeal to all those who are reading this, please share your happiness, celebrate your happiness with underprivileged kids as well, they need us. How many times have you seen a small child across a bakery looking longingly at it’s glass display, reach out and buy something for him, he will remember that for his life. We eat lavish exotic food all the time, share it with someone who can’t afford it and it’s taste will enhance ten folds for you.
Now back to the Independence day celebration, the first thing was to decide the menu as I planned to call them up at my home so that little girl would be more comfortable in homely simple environment. I think only my refrigerator can decide the menu so let’s take a look into it.

In the kingdom of Merylun,
Once lived a girl called moon.
Her enchanting looks were so Noble,
That the princes of all the seven kingdoms
were under her spell.
Her eyes held all the starts
that twinkles and soothes the scars.
When its gleam would fall on kingdom’s dome,
It would take away the darkness of a million homes.
Her skin, oh! so radiant,
It could heal even a maiden.
Her smile knew all the answers
People would blindly follow her, even the masters.
She was the epitome of calmness,
Her presence would give solace.
She clenched her pen again,
that was bleeding on paper in vain.
Another letter she won’t send,
Everything’s magnificent she’d pretend.
“You deserve someone who’d move mountains for you,
And I deserve someone whom I could love without ado.
I never wanted to cause you hurt,
and this truth needed an assert.”
He’d reasoned but
All she wanted was to hold fast the dreams
the promises he’d made,
the world he’d painted. Continue reading
“I love Pizza.” My youngest cousin declared, she is 8 years old and dear lord being the youngest, she is most pampered and most adorable so everyone gives into her wishes.
“And pasta, Manchurian, Hakka-noodles, burger without lettuce,” She made a face while saying lettuce as if its lizard (sorry for giving that image) and then she continued, “Finger fries, potato chips, soft drinks. Did I mention Pizza? I love pizza a lot; a lot.” She emphasized it all in a single breath. I just stood there nodding my head like a bubble-head doll, she isn’t getting any of that, I thought. Of course she isn’t. Do you know how unhealthy all that is! That’s the problem with kids today; they just want junk food not healthy, oh! Hang on there for a moment! I am giving this know-it-all speech because I am aware about the benefits of balanced healthy-diet but I am a kid myself; now that we are clear on that, let’s continue. (Where was I? Yes) Because of the easy access of world cuisine to kids, they just want food that tastes delicious and general misconception is that the food that’s healthy isn’t delicious.
